Tired of meeting BOYS who tell me what I want to hear, make and break promises, and aren’t ready for something serious.(This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on. )) You: Honest, mature, gentleman, emotionally, mentally, financially secure (“financially secure” is a bad move in a dating profile because it’s an immediate red flag to a guy that he might be dealing with a materialistic woman.)
